Gidget Goes to Grad School

I've had my ups and downs with GIDGET so far, but basically I am digging it the most. I think I'll see what the grad students make of it next semester. Why isn't it taught hand-in-hand with ON THE ROAD? It's virtually contemporary and covers lots of the same psychic territory. Is it because ON THE ROAD is so boyish and GIDGET is about a girl? Does my old crackpot Samuel Beckett/Anita Loos theory apply, or am I just full of crap? I guess we'll never know.
